About Us

Cambridge Coding Academy is a constantly growing community of young coders and pre-university students. Our innovative project-based coding curriculum incorporates a combination of hands-on activities, stimulating challenges, and outcome-driven projects. These are designed to equip students with today’s most in-demand skills, as they learn to code their own real-world products.

Founded in 2014, we have been delivering exceptional industry-relevant computer science training to young people. From the beginning, we have been working with leading educational institutions, both in the UK and internationally, to help students develop new skills, take control of technology, and get creative with code. Our mission is to make high quality technology education fun, personalised and accessible to everyone.
